Hi all, finally got my new project to a point that it is worth starting a build thread.
Picked up a vc wagon from next door to my parents house for $50. It had sat in their yard for about 8 years.
Dragged it next door and started measuring
All looked good, so started with the important stuff. Wash, chop springs and fit interceptors. Old wheels were rusted away and fused to the hubs, also fitted vs diff and front suspension.
Ripped the 179 out, and fitted vl manual pedals.
Swapped a sr bellhousing onto a vl gearbox, as the sr box was too long. Was hoping i could used the standard vl tailshaft, but seems the tunnel is a bit different from vc to vl. No biggie
And then first test fit of the engine. Had to cut off the Bracing on the crossmember as well as the engone brackets. It is a pretty snug fit as the commodore rails are taller and closer together compared to a silvia.
And thats where i'm at.
